    Fascinating tour, brilliant value
    All the hype in Comillas surrounds Gaudi, but don't miss this gem! 5 euros for a brilliant 45 minute tour of this beautiful building and its fascinating history. Very knowledgeable and fun tour guide. Highly recommended

    Loved this!
    Really beautiful, and the guid was fantastic! We had an English speaking guide, who knew so much about the family, the town, and the history of the place. Highly recommend! A couple of minutes walk from the main town square in Comillas. There is a bus stop right outside of the grounds, so very easy to access!

    Needs some signage for those non Spanish speaking visitors
    This is well worth a visit but unfortunately there are no signs around the building - in any language. We took the tour as this was the only option to see inside but we could not understand the commentary - I found out later that Gaudi had designed the fireplaces but luckily had photographed them so I could have a more detailed look. A sign in each room in the major languages would have made the experience much better.

This marvellous Neo-Gothic palace was once the summer home of the Marqués de Comillas. Designed by Modernista architect Joan Martorell, it also has an ornate wood-carved fireplace designed by Antoni Gaudí.

The exterior is decorated with magnificent Gothic balconies with intricate traceries over Modernisme columns. The interior can only be seen on 30-minute guided tours (in Spanish), you’ll see the grand central hall with sweeping carved-stone staircases, a reception/billiard room, beautiful stained-glass windows and vibrant murals detailing a egotistical journey through the marquis’ life.

This is a beautiful building and worth the trip if you are already in Comillas. We did not see the inside as the tours are only in Spanish. If you don't do the tour this will take you less than 30 minutes to walk around the grounds.

Sadly, they were only permitting access as part of guided tours and we did not want to wait and in any event there were no English guided tours. They let us walk up to the Palace free of charge. Impressive building with it's own substantial church next door. It was particularly interesting as my wife if from the Philippines and the Lopez family are one of the main families in the Philippines.

The guided tour was only in spanish and french. We talked to the ticket lady in english but she didn’t warn us that the tour wasn’t in english. We were not allowed to walk around on our own and had to listen to a spanish guide for an hour.

What a pity that such a wonderful site is so badly organized. The website is just awful. It doesn’t work properly and almost lost in the net (search for it in Google and good luck with it) We are Spanish speakers and was difficult to us, we cannot imagine what it can be for a foreigner.

The entrance appears to have to types of entrances which the guide at the counter never explained.

Also, it said to arrive 15 min prior departure, arrive before as they simply close the door and you are left there.

The guide, where to start, rude and expressive as a parrot. Simply memorizing the speech and being zero interactive.

By the way, the group is large as 60 people, so for those with hearing or walking issues, you won’t get to follow much.

It’s really, such a disturb to see important sites as this one, part of our heritage being lost for such a poor management.

In the 19th century, new prosperity brought a spate of new buildings to Comillas as it became a holiday destination for the aristocracy.

The first Marquess of Comillas was Antonio López y López, owner of the Compañía Transatlántica Española. Born in Comillas in 1817, he made his fortune in Cuba in shipping and slaves and bought his title in 1878.

He purchased the Casa Ojeco for his mother and, on the 5th of May 1881, the King held Parliament here, so Comillas was Spain's capital city for a day.

Before this, Antonio López y López had invited King Alfonso XII to his mansion, thus ensuring the town's popularity, while the architect Joan Martorell built the enormous and extravagant Neo-Gothic Palacio de Sobrellano for the marquess (which now also has modern sculpture in its grounds) with the Art Nouveau university on the hillside opposite.

It's a spectacular building, but it is really irritating, when you are at the Gaudi house next door, to have to go back to the main road for a long circular walk, at which point you discover you have just missed the hourly guided tour. The two should work more closely together, for the benefit of both.
